Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Book Snoop January 26, 2009

There were a number of books on the bus this morning:

 

The Jewel Trader of Pegu  

Lace Reader  

Eclipse & Breaking Dawn (those covers are so distinctive) 

Dewey 

Another hard-cover with a light-colored dust jacket - wrong angle to see the cover

Two library books

an issue of JAMA

several well-loved mass-market paperbacks

 

(I had to stand all the way, so I was being nosy :smileywink:

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

It made up for today - only one newspaper and the book I was reading (Why We Read Fiction).

I worry that Sony Readers and Kindles will impede our snooping!

Snooped in the hospital (night shift): a patient was reading Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns. He said it was very interesting.

Again, in the hospital: Brideshead Revisited, and a Vince Flynn book (don't remember the title).

Re: Book Snoop January 26, 2009

i've always been seeing people with that Eat, Pray, Love book and i found it at Goodwill for only .99 cents, i HAD to get it, i wanted to read it before Amberville so im reading it now. Its okay... not as good as i thought it was going to be.
